Byrd Cookie Company

May Your Cookie Jar Never Be Empty
These cute itty bitty bite-sized mini cookies literally melt in your mouth. I sometimes dream of the combo of the sugary powdered coating and the tangy, fruity pucker of Byrd's key lime coolers and georgia peach cookies.

In 1924, Ben T. Byrd, Sr. began baking small batches of cookies from his bakery in Savannah, Georgia, packing them in wooden crates, and personally delivering them to neighborhood markets in his Model T Ford. The cookies were soon christened “Byrd’s Famous Cookies” and steadily gained popularity not only locally, but also among visitors who discovered the delicious confections while visiting Savannah. It was Byrd’s son, BT Byrd, Jr., who would later go by Cookie Byrd, who had the idea of packing these bite sized confections in tins, so that they would travel better. This idea, paired with his popularizing of the Benne Wafer and the Benne Seed, took the company to a new level.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Byrd's Key Lime Cooler was the first cookie to ever win the Dessert of the Year award at the NASFT Fancy Food Show. Byrd Cookies have been featured on several occasions on the Food Network.
